OWC Announces Mercury Aura Pro Express/Aura Envoy as Industry’s First High-Performance SSD and Enclosure Bundle For MacBook Air Computers
Imagine if the continents never separated, yet all the various cultures that developed throughout the world still retained their identities, all the while intermingling with each other. What would their music sound like? African percussion mixed with Japanese flutes and Spanish guitar? European techno beats over Brazilian vocals?
It’s kind of a strange concept to try and wrap your mind around, but that’s the whole concept behind Pangaea Projekt. They take instruments from cultures across the globe and fuse them together with vocals and modern synthesizer technology to form their own unique-sounding compositions, with a unique “electronic/world music” sound.
So what’s that got to do with OWC?
Well, while we won’t take any claim to the music itself, OWC memory and drives were instrumental in its production. Their latest album “Gaia’s Dream” was recorded and mixed on a MacBook Pro full of OWC RAM and it was recorded to several OWC hard drives, and when they played live at the Reebok World Conference in Phoenix, they used the same rig for flawless playback.
It just goes to show you, no matter what kind of music, video, or art you produce, OWC delivers professional-grade hardware for the discerning user.
